The highlight today was the discovery of a third Great Grey Shrike in our area, this one at Lilla Cross discovered by Paul Newton and Graham Oliver, whilst those at Maw Rigg and May Moss remained in situ.

The only report of Waxwings today was a lone individual by Dunelm on Seamer Road this morning.

4 Eiders flew south past Marine Drive and in the harbour area there were 48 Purple Sandpipers, Great Northern Diver and Black-necked Grebe.

Wykeham South Lake hosted 5 Great-crested Grebes, Little Grebe, 6 Goldeneye, Pochard, 27 Tufted Duck, 42 Wigeon, Gadwall, 5 Egyptian Geese, 4 Teal, 86 Coot and a Stonechat.
